Al-Ahli vs Al-Taawoun predicted lineups and team news

This is how we believe the Al-Ahli vs Al-Taawoun starting XIs could look this Saturday:

Al-Ahli- Will they make it four straight wins at home?

This current season of the Saudi Pro League started with three straight wins for the Al-Ahil camp, and as they approach their clash with Al-Taawoun, they sure hope to make it a straight four. The camp of Al-Ahil looks absolutely positive, and being at home, they are sitting in a comfortable position despite the disappointing defeat (5-1) against Al-Fateh.

With Roberto Firmino in their starting XI, they would hope that the Brazilian can give them a blistering start and keep their home record for this season undefeated.

Al-Ahli: Team news

Al-Ahli lost their first Saudi Pro League game this season against Al-Fateh by a disappointing scoreline of 5-1. Now the team looks ahead and wants to win the home game against Al-Taawoun. Defender Merih Demiral will be unable to start the home game against Al-Taawoun because of the Red card he received in the last game against Al-Fateh. The camp would work hard to bounce back, as they haven’t lost any home game yet this season.

Al-Ahli’s predicted lineup ( 4-2-3-1)

Edouard Mendy (GK); Bassam Al-Hurayyji, Abdulbaset Al-Hindi, Roger Ibañez, Ibrahim Al Zubaidi; Mohammed Al-Majhad, Franck Kessié; Riyad Mahrez, Gabri Veiga, Allan Saint-Maximin; Roberto Firmino.

Al-Taawoun- Can they keep their winning streak alive?

After a dominating game against Al-Wehda that ended up being a 4-1 win for the Al-Taawoun team, they are yet to lose a game in this season’s Saudi Pro League. Al-Taawoun’s massive scoreline speaks volumes about their performance at home. But their only draw against Al-Fateh in an away game also speaks to the fact that they can be vulnerable in away games.

The Al-Taawoun squad seems to have found a massive surge of confidence after that 4-1 win against Al-Wehda, but now they need to sustain that winning streak and claim their away victory.

Al-Taawoun: Team news

The Al-Taawoun squad’s focus right now is to sustain their team coordination and do their best against a hungry Al-Ahil quad on Saturday. The team was seen practicing ahead of their next game against Al-Ahil and it looks like the camp is very happy and confident with their winning streak as of now. They are at number 3 on the league table, and they would surely want to climb up.

Al-Taawoun’s predicted lineup (4-3-3)

Mailson (GK); Aloyayari Abdulmalik, Andrei Girotto, Waleed Al-Ahmed, Muath Faqeehi; Flávio, Ashraf El Mahdioui, Álvaro Medrán; Mateus, Sattam Al-Roqi, Ahmed Bahusayn.
